Round 8 Matches

Since Mountainman56 has made it this far without so much as a scratch (grats Mountainman56! :hatsoff: ), we have decided to throw in a twist for this round rather than drawing another bye. Here's the matches;

Mountainman56 vs GW
Mountainman56 vs Jim/OH

Each contestant will shoot one target. We'll use Mountainman56's score twice.
If Mountainman56 beats 'em both, he wins the whole shootin' match.
If they both beat Mountainman56, he's done for and the other 2 guys shoot it out.
If Mountainman56 beats one and the other beats him, then Mountainman56 shoots against the guy who beats him this round.
Either this is it or we go one more round.
Good luck boys! :hatsoff:
Fire when ready!

ps. Don't forget, the grand prize of a bottle of Swamp Rat's bear oil is waitin' to be sent to the winner. :thumbsup:

Hey GW and Jim/OH, I mentioned this to Jethro the other day and I'm wondering if either of you have noticed. For one thing there ain't nuthin but "Old Guys" left (course some of us are a LOT older that others) :rotf: . According to the available information GW and I are twins (from different mothers), Jim/OH's birthday is a few days later but we're all born in July......just a little FYI





Especially Old Guys born in July!

You're right Mountainman 56. Us "Old" guys have ended up on top of the heap. Those "Young Bucks" better sit up and take notice. :thumbsup: Good luck to both of you (but I hope I win). :grin: However it turns out, it has been a real blast doing this one shot match all summer. So here we go, see ya, Jim/OH :hatsoff:

:hmm: Sounds like a challenge...

Might hafta do an "Old Guys vs Young Guys" contest. 50 and up vs. 49 and down??? Add 'em all from each group together for the averages??? 'Course, we'll probly hafta wait until springtime so you old guys can get out to shoot without yer joints stiffenin' up too bad to pull the trigger. :rotf:

(I usta think I was gettin' old... until I signed on to this forum. Now I'm young again. :grin: )

I'm in.....The good thing about the "Old Guys" shooting against the youngsters is we can't lose. Even if they outshoot us what are they going to brag about? "Hey we outshot a bunch of old guys with bad eyesight and parkinsons?" :rotf: :rotf: On the other hand if we win........... :haha:

Grey Whiskers and Jim/OH, I'm going to take my shot this weekend. While I'm at it I think I'll shoot a few different weapons in the 3 shot contest.

Hey Gw and Jim/OH...no pressure this round. I guess old Mabel was mad at me for leavin her standin in the corner for a month. Up and gave me a hang fire. Haven't had one of them since last year with pyrodex. Snap..........bang. Man I hate when that happens. Just so you know my windage was perfect. My elevation was just 1/2" off.........below the bottom of the paper that is. Real purdy hole on a brand new backboard. The worst part was I had a witness. :nono: Hey Grey Whiskers, all ya gotta do is hit the paper to get rid of the old mountainman for good. Don't choke now.

Try not to cut is as close as you did last time. :rotf:

The rest of you dead guys put a bunch more beer in the cooler. There's likely to be a dry old West Texas prairie dog comin down to visit. I'll be the only one what got wounded and killed in the same round. :shake:

NEWS FLASH!!!

MOUNTAIN MAN 56 IS STILL BREATHIN! :shocked2:

Well I guess I need to check the sights on my rifle. This one landed about a half inch higher than the last one that just barely hit the top edge of the paper. I'll leave it to Jethro to sort this mess out. :hmm: GW
